what is your config value for

That was set to 1 by default. I changed it to 0 but I can't see any any change.

It should be 1. If it's 0, the TEXT tab will disappear.

Please double check your config file. I cannot replicate this on my system.

I installed the new RC3 and still the same problem. The value is 1 by default.

I can't replicate this. When I set USE_MANUAL_TEXT_PART to 1, the tab appears.

By default it is 0

@michiel I can replicate this on a fresh install of 3.3.2 RC3, with default config files and new database. The value of USE_MANUAL_TEXT_PART has no impact.

Weird. Are you sure you are editing the correct config file?

@michiel On a fresh install it shouldn't be necessary to edit any configuration file because the text tab is enabled in config_extended.php. Yes, the config.php file that I used to test manually enabling the setting is definitely used by phpList (it's the only file where the database credentials are set in this installation).

"because the text tab is enabled in config_extended.php"

config_extended.php isn't used at all.

The default value is set in init.php to 0 and that has not changed since 3.3.1, so this is the expected behaviour.
 The "bug" is that the value in config_extended.php is different to the default value in init.php.

Yes, I second Duncan.

We can decide to enable it by default, but that's a different issue. I tried to keep the basic install as simple as possible, which means that the manual text input is suppressed and text is automatically generated. I think that's a valid decision, but I'm happy to discuss it.

Thanks @duncanc. Yes I assumed that it was enabled by default because of the value in config_extended.php. I had tried adding the setting in config.php but had not logged out and in again it seems so the change was not applied. Defining USE_MANUAL_TEXT_PART in config.php and logging out and in via web UI does indeed apply the change. So changing the default value in config_extended.php should fix the issue.
